help with brakes!!

alright guys, here is the deal. one of my brake pads decided to break and catch on fire and leak fluid everywhere. fixed all that. i replace the rotor and caliper and turned and replace all other rotors and pads. now that everything is back on the pedal goes all the way to the floor way too easy. i have bleed all the lines over and over. ran atleast 3 bottles of fluid threw them. also bleed the master cylinder. so im thinkin either the master cylinder decided to go bad too or there is air in the abs. idk how to bleed the abs so if anyone knows how help please!!
thanks

This will sound crazy (atleast to me it did), but when I did my brakes I lost some power steering fluid and bled my brakes with no luck. I decided to top off the power steering level and the brakes worked fine ever since.

Second that. The power steering fluid is used as a brake booster or something along those lines.

Is it the same with 7.3L trucks? Mine has funny feeling brakes ever since I bought it. It's my 1st powerstroke so I figured it was normal. They just feel more squishy than I liked, but I'm used to it now.

Yeah, powerstrokes (and all diesels I think) do not produce vacuum so they use the powersteering pump to run the brakes as well.
